Stephen Pagliuca on Budget & Economy


Managing director at Bain Capital; trained as accountant

Pagliuca, the managing director at Bain Capital, told his personal story as the grandson of an Italian immigrant who urged him to get an education and succeed. He said his grandfather had wanted him to be an accountant because they were the only people with good jobs during the Depression. Now that the United States is in the worst economy since those times, he said he would fight in Washington to make sure today's children would have the same opportunities that he did.

Transparency & accountability in regulating financial system

In the days and years to come, we must not lose sight of the next step in recovery--regulatory reforms designed to strengthen the system for the long term. We need to come together to reform the broken policies and rules that allowed for exploitation and substantially step-up our enforcement efforts. For our economy to work, we need to have a set of rules that encourage transparency, provide accountability, and offer a principled progressive approach to regulating our nation's financial system.

Create jobs via robust economic growth

We cannot create jobs without robust economic growth and investing in our citizens. I want to use my background and experience to shape new policy that will restore a better balance between government and business, to ensure that every hard-working family share in the prosperity that will define the economic challenges our nation and our children will face in the years ahead.

I am running for Senate at a time when our nation faces immense challenges. If we are to meet the urgent tests of our times--to restore our economic vitality, protect our nation, reform health care, combat climate change, teach our children well, safeguard the dignity of our parents and grandparents, and take the next step forward in the quest for equality--we must now be prepared to dare greatly. I will not be able to solve these problems singlehandedly, but I know that we can do it together.
